RE: st: Data types, collapse & egen
Great instincts, Tim. I was using outsheet but was also browsing the data within Stata beforehand & saw the problem there already. I guess the display format is used both in browse and by outsheet. As per your suggestion, I changed the display formats & now everything is copacetic. I guess my new question is how do collapse & egen pick display formats (because I just went with what Stata gave me)?
